Pumps of various designs and applications are encountered nowadays. Although there has been great progress in pump design in recent years, and the care in operation and maintenance there are still many issues related to the mechanical and hydraulic problems to be considered that are associated with efficient operation of the whole pumping system. Inability to deliver the desired flow and head is just one of the most common conditions for taking a pump out of service. There is always need for optimization of the pumping system in operation with the goal of reducing the overall costs of production. Any operating engineer, who typically has a chemical engineering background and who desires to protect his pumps from frequent failures must develop not only a good understanding of the process but also thorough knowledge of the mechanics of the pump. Effective troubleshooting requires an ability to observe changes in performance over time, and in the event of a failure, the capacity to thoroughly investigate the cause of the failure and take measures to prevent the problem from re-occurring. The main objective of this course is to enhance the technical knowledge of the personnel working in this field by being familiar with up to date technology.
